Kate Garraway ‘set to become the new Nick Knowles as she will host DIY SOS-style show on ITV
Kate Garraway is set to move into DIY territory with a new show that will see her take on a different project each week. The Good Morning Britain presenter will front the new programme, which is being billed as ‘an extreme makeover for the modern home’. The DIY SOS-style series will see Kate transform the homes of families and individuals in just one weekend. She will be joined on the show by a team of professional tradesmen who will work with her to realise the homeowner’s vision. The show will be called Kate’s Renovation Rescue, and ITV has ordered six episodes for the new series.
Kate Garraway is reportedly set to become the new Nick Knowles as she will host a new DIY SOS-style show on ITV. According to the Daily Star, the This Morning star has hinted that she will be the new face of the channel’s upcoming home improvement series. The new TV show is yet to be named, but is reportedly being lined up as a rival to Channel 4’s The Big Build. It is also said to involve renovating homes for people in need and will be filmed in the south east of England. A source told the outlet: “Kate has a strong connection with the south and loves to help others. She’s perfect for the show. She’s already got a great fanbase and the producers think she’s a strong enough personality to hold the show on her own.”
